Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Patch 47 - Unleash the Vypress Sabre!



Unleash the Vypress Sabre in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare - a crossover weapon from Torn Banner Studios’ upcoming multiplayer magic & melee FPS Mirage: Arcane Warfare.

Join the Mirage Steam Community to unlock this brand new weapon in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, available as a free replacement for the Sabre.

Also in this patch, a freshly baked batch of community-created weapons and armor:


This patch also addresses the following fixes.

Changes

Gameplay
  • Miscellaneous exploit fixes
  • Various config file exploits fixed (e.g. removing foliage)
  • Tournament Mode; only admins can unpause a paused match

Misc.
  • fixed inverted normal map on Cold Spectre Greatsword
  • Fix crash when downloading workshop files if using -nomovie
  • added new UGC rounds 10,11 and 12!
  • added Vypress Sabre… must be a member of Mirage Steam Community

Maps/Levels
Coldfront
  • reverted accidental change that effectively broke the king objective. Removed bonus time for *completing second objective.

Castle Assault
  • added blockers to prevent you from reaching the gate to the king immediately. They are destroyed 10 seconds after the town objective completes.

Citadel
  • disabled collision on ash particle and instead added weather volumes to interior spaces to turn off the ash

Cove
  • spawn point access blockering, some were quite easy to get into from the outside.
  • Also some blocking volumes added to prevent a map exploit where players could get inside buildings they aren’t meant to.
  • Cove LTS - fully blocked off spawn point zones

Forest
  • set lightshaft meshes and fireflies to medium detail up from low (will not show up on low detail now). Set fixed bounds on fireflies particle system.

King's Garden
  • added blockers during the first stage to prevent you from reaching the gate to the king, preventing attackers from camping the gate before the ram objective is complete to make it more fair to defenders

Outpost
  • set owner of first objective properly so when Agatha successfully completes it they are no longer told they failed
  • tent burning progress bars are now split between left/right tents
  • changed values on mason chieftain AI settings to not be out of range (which can make the AI act dumb)

AOCFFA-DrunkenBazaar-CM_p
  • New! FFA map in the final library area of Drunken Bazaar
  • Beta note: fixed broken spawns from first beta build

Misc maps
  • there was one stair mesh with bad lightmaps which is all over hillside

"I’m rather enamoured by the unique flavour of online combat presented by Chivalry. It’s fresh and fun, and like the very best games is easy to get into yet incredibly hard to master."

“I saw my body slump to the floor, some distance away and then the hammer-bastard was standing over me, attempting to play croquet with what remained of my face.”

About This Game

Besiege castles and raid villages in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a first-person slasher with a focus on multi-player. Featuring competitive online combat that seeks to capture the experience of truly being on a medieval battlefield. Inspired from the intensity and epicness of swordfighting movies such as 300, Gladiator and Braveheart, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare aims to bring that experience to the hands of a gamer.

The game is skill-based and controls like an FPS, but instead of guns and grenades, players are given swords, shields, maces, battleaxes and longbows. Set in a fictional, yet gritty and realistic world, players will fight in fast paced online battles besieging castles, raiding medieval villages and fighting for glory in the arena with up to 32 players.

Key Features:


  • Deep melee combat system provides players with a huge range of responsive combat options
  • Adjust your attacks and blocks in real time with the mouse for precise and full control of the action
  • Wield an arsenal of up to 60 brutal weapons ranging from broad swords and battle axes to longbows and javelins
  • Dynamic objective system brings team tactics and strategy to the forefront as players batter down gates, raid villages and assassinate enemy royalty to achieve victory.
  • Use a variety of siege weapons ranging from catapults, boiling oil, ballista, battering rams and more
  • Vast, lush environments that transport the player to a gritty and immersive medieval world.
  • Offline play options that allow players to gain familiarity with the controls and gameplay before being thrust into the action.

>Gets in a street near some gate

>Sees entire enemy team running and screaming "FOR AGATHA!!!" "AARRGHHH!!!" "FOR THE KING!!!!!"

>Switches to fists hoping that they will do the same

>Mashes C button on keyboard (Battlecry)

>They approach

>Gets ready

>Gets crushed and slaughtered by like three guys with longswords and maces

>Dies of laughter in real world



10/10 would switch to fists again

But really - seeing the whole enemy team running towards you, screaming and shouting and stuff - that is a sight to behold. When I saw them, I couldn't do anything but stand and watch them close in. I also could have run - but they would have caught me I figured. I wanted to die with honor and a sword - I mean, fists - in hands.

I could arguably recommend this, but there are cons that limit the new player's funtime experience. As a veteran player of Age of Chivalry, I found this game a nice graphic retouching of the original, but I find it frustrating in places like getting kicked for your ping jumping up for a second, or the toxicity of this game's community.

Many of them have criticised the swing mechanic and how players abuse it to make them look like spinning helicopter ballerinas. Truth is that it's actually very easy to counter these reverse-overheads and speed-ups. It's only because after a while you can see where you'd put your block when they do these moves. In other words they become very predictable.

NOW however this does not make it fun for the new player at all once they are kicked out of the low rank servers where they must deal with it. New players would have to put real dedication into it and master blocking these helicopter swings. Making the value of this game decrease dramatically due to it's fun value being lowered by this.

So in conclusion... Get it or not? Get Age of Chivalry first, it's free and has similar gameplay, you're also able to determine if Chivalry is right for you, but the community of Chivalry might drive you away though if you question this swinging mechanic so either turn off chat completely or stick to AoC. THERE ARE RARE CASES OF THE BALLERINAS NOT BEING IN A GAME, so you might be lucky to find such a game, especially if you're a new guy.

I will be playing this though, just because I'm used to the swing mechanic's exploitation being used on me, so it's not a big deal, but like I said it might not make it fun for the new player. (I to this day remain a pure fighter, never abused the swing mechanic.)

Best game ever. 100% fun. Can't get tired of it.

That is, IF TORN BANNER (the devs) FINALLY DECIDES TO FIX THE BLOODY SPINNING GLITCHY ATTACKS (the reverse overheads, rainbows and silly things like that).

No medieval swordsman ever 360° spinned attack while crouching. Unless he wanted to die quickly.

I will pass my review in a "I recommend" status as soon as it gets fixed.

But man I love this game, and it kills me to see that it is still not properly fixed.

> Join dueling server
> Select the Knight class
> Queue up to fight
> Get paired with a new player, knows nothing about the game
> I do the crouch-smashing-your-head-into-the-floor gesture, as a sign of good luck to my opponent
> I can smell his fear
> See that he doesn't do the same gesture, I lose respect for this peasant
> I move to the very center of the arena, allowing him to make the first move
> He takes a swing, but block it as if it was nothing
> I then slice his head off with my axe
> I stare down at his headless corpse, hear and see blood spewing from his neck, his head rolls off to the side
> Queue up again
> And again, and again
> Keep winning lots of duels
> Next queue
> Opponent is a formiddable one
> We do the good luck gesture
> We both walk to the center of the arena
> I take a swing, and he blocks it as if it was nothing
> He then slices off my head with his axe
> He stares down at my corpse, sees and hears blood spewing out from my neck
> Whoever fights noobs, should see to it that in the process he does become a noob. And if you gaze long enough into the blood spewing corpse, the corpse will gaze back into you. - Friedrich Nietzsche

Was a good game but am not happy with the combat exploits. The devs need to fix the combat exploits by eliminating the rainbow/overhead/whirlwind attack, or whatever its called! DEVS FIX THIS ASAP ITS RUINING A GREAT GAME!

from level 0-15 this game is great, once you figure out how the weapons work the only thing left to do after you reach the rookie level cap of 15 is be thrown in an MLG Jedi Master swordsman server and get your ♥♥♥ pounded.



dont buy.
